Party Scene: Not a lot of people who like to go out every weekend. You end up doing the same thing with the same people at the same few places.

Drug Safety: The only thing I see being used is alcohol and thats by a very small circle of people. I got in trouble for opening cans in my room so they are strict about the dry campus thing.

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus. Burlington obviously has some sketchy parts but when venturing around town just always have a friend to walk with. CPS is always a phone call away which is nice. I never hear about any crime on campus.

Overall Experience: I came in undeclared which I found out very quickly that this school is for people who know what they want to do. There are no undeclared classes you just jump into the intro classes of all the majors which I found wasn't really helping me make my decision of what I wanted to major in. Bottom line is if you know exactly what you want to do and Champlain has it then you will do great here.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Since I am a freshmen I don't have much experience with the job/internship stuff, however it seems very easy to talk to anyone apart of career services. Plus Champlain has a very high rate of graduating with a job so seems like there're doing a good job.

Campus Housing: The dorms here are really nice. First year I lucked out and got a private bathroom and air conditioning which was really nice. Most of the dorms are really close to campus which is super convenient. Dorms are really tiny which can sometimes mean lots of drama. If you are good friends with everyone then it could be nice.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no greek life.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There are no varsity sports here only intramural teams and clubs. I thought that this would be fine however I miss being able to go to football games and showing school spirit.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The only reason I'm rating it okay is because the school is just not for me. If you like a small school, small campus stuff like that then this would be good for you. I prematurely chose this college. However the people I have met here are great, all the teachers I've had are great, and my classes have been enjoyable. Burlington is also a really cool town to experience, although pretty pricey.

Campus Housing: First year housing in victorian houses is unique, but the rooms are not evenly sized and odd shapes some times which can be hard

Overall Experience: Professors in the Graphic Design department really care about students, some of the classes are too big though

Overall Experience: High job placement rate after graduation, and career services is there to help

1 College Student

Party Scene: The nightlife is smoking pot outside the dorm. If that counts as a nightlife?

3 College Student

Party Scene: Ive heard of parties but ive never been so I cant talk on this one.

3 College Student

Academics: Acedemics arent awful but they arent great. Ive had some really good teachers while ive been here but the subject matter really isnt the best.

3 College Student

Diversity: So diversity is sort of odd here. Its a very liberal school so if you are an African American, gay, lesbian, ect. you will be 100% excepted and everyone will love you. At the same time people seem to think republicans are devil spawn. So basically, be prepared to accept everyone 100% and be liberal or get out.

Drug Safety: Its burlington vermont, is there any more to say? If you dont do at least weed then cross this college off your list right now because it isnt the place for you.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: In general campus is pretty safe. Walking into burlington is a bit sketchy at night but bring a buddy and youll be fine.

2 College Student

Overall Experience: I would not come here again if I had the choice, the small liberal campus is not the life for me. However, if you like small liberal campus's then you'll probably really like it here.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: I have my doubts about the value of a degree from this school. Core is a waste of time and some of my other classes arent much better.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Housing is pretty good on campus. As it is a small campus, housing is all close to classes. The wifi also works very well. One problem I have had is that the dorm smells like weed almost all the time. This school revolves around weed, if you dont smoke stay away.

Greek Life: There is no greek life on campus, if that is your thing great, if it isnt also great. Either way we dont have it.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

The incredible feeling most students get the first time they walk through Champlain College's campus never leaves. The campus is absolutely beautiful—you always get to see familiar faces as well as meet new people, have unique leadership opportunities, and take classes that are interesting to you from the day you start. The small class sizes (25 students or less) help students form strong relationships with each other and their professors. Class discussions and hands-on projects are more common than tests. Everyone at Champlain is here to help you succeed, find your interests, practice your skills, and get a job relevant to your major after graduation. The Upside-Down Curriculum is not a scam—it's real. You can come to Champlain as a general business major and switch to marketing your sophomore year, after learning exactly what you want to do because your classes are already teaching you that.

Students at Champlain are valued in the greater-Burlington community because they have the skills employers are looking for. Students are unique because they're career-oriented, while still having a great core program that combines all of their general studies (history, literature, psychology, philosophy, art, science) for greater focus on their major. The LEAD (Life Experience & Action Dimension) program also prepares students for life after college.
